Longtime Seattleite and Belltown resident Jeffrey M. Cohen launched his campaign for 36th Legislative District state representative in late May. He is a first-time candidate for public office.

Having worked in the private sector his entire career — and the last 13 years in the travel and tourism sector — Cohen has experienced firsthand the devastating impact that COVID-19 has had on Seattle’s businesses and economy, according to his campaign announcement. He is passionate about helping Seattle’s tourism industry and small businesses recover from the effects of the pandemic, and help bring our vibrant city back to life.

As a Seattle resident for over 22 years, he has also witnessed the rising prohibitive costs of housing and will work to create affordable housing solutions that benefit everyone. He will also be an advocate for the most vulnerable citizens of our community including seniors, communities of color and the homeless, according to the announcement.

“What is paramount to me is reducing the burden on Washingtonians from high health care premiums and large out of pocket expenses incurred as a result of office visits and hospital stays,” Cohen said in his announcement.

He also intends to be an advocate in Olympia for LGBTQ+ protections, rights and freedoms by supporting nondiscrimination protections for the LGBTQ+ community.

Cohen, who is running as a Democrat, has previously served as a precinct committee officer and earned his masters degree in public administration in 2013. He is running against Democrat Liz Berry and Democrat Sarah Reyneveld in the Aug. 4 primary race.
